Collections in the Spotlight

A chance to see special items from our Collections

01 February - 30 September 2015

Ever wanted to learn more about the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust’s collections? Collections in the Spotlight gives you a chance to see temporary displays of objects that are usually tucked away in our archives. 

You can find out even more about the objects on display in special 15 minute talks held throughout the year. Keep checking back for more details!

From April to September there will also be a display of items at Hall's Croft, including John Hall's signet ring and seal impression, a urine flask and a copy of Doctor Hall’s observations.
